About Us

Ely's gallery (formerly in the shopping arcade of the Inbal Hotel) displays the works of some of the world's finest designers and craftsmen, such as Zelig Segal, Dan Givon, Avi Biran, Menachem Berman and many more.

Ely Levisohn also gave many emerging Bezalel graduates a chance to reach the public. He has one condition - excellence. This is the immediate impression that strikes the visitor to Judaica Heirlooms. Dozens of items of Judaica ritual items, haggadas and illuminated megilla manucripts are on display. Each bears the unquestionable hallmark of master craftsmanship. Many artists who have acquired fame in their respective fields owe their careers to Ely Levisohn who introduced their in work to the community of collectors and aficionados in this country and abroad. In his quest, he has traveled extensively in Israel and abroad searching for fine Judaica. A significant aspect of Ely Levishon's work has been the promotion of Russian immigrant artists. One way of doing this was by creating illuminated manuscripts. Half a dozen outstanding immigrant artists were given employment creating these rare items. 

Lately, Judaica Heirlooms has also focused on fine sculpture, displaying works by internationally known artists such as Mane Katz, Boris Schatz and even Reuven Rubin. Currently, Judaica Heirlooms is sponsoring the well known sculptor - Danny Kafri, creating biblical and Jewish motifs out of stone and bronze, which are beginning to be acquired by museums. 

Despite its huge scope, the premises of Judaica Heirlooms is rather small. Every inch is crammed-albeit tastefully-with art and Judaica. It is the sort of place where every step you take, you encounter a game. But one thing is clear by any international yardstick Judaica Heirlooms is a serious Gallery, both in the scope and standard of exhibits, and the expertise and amiability of the staff.
